Quilters make works for wounded warriors

HARLINGEN — Quilts with a purpose was the order of the day yesterday at the Paradise Park Piecemakers Quilt Club’s annual show.

Seven “Quilts of Valor” made by club members were ready to be delivered to the VA’s McAllen Outpatient Clinic for the Wounded Warriors Project.

“That’s our project that we’ve been working on this year,” said Lenore Davis.

Davis and her fellow quilters also created a “raffle quilt” that’s sold to the highest bidder. The quilt is primarily blue and mauve with a geometric pattern.

Last year, proceeds from the raffle quilt went to the Sunny Glen Children’s Home and Loaves and Fishes.
